The book of Genesis is the foundational seed upon which
all other scripture rests for support. If you don’t know how it started, you
will never understand how it will end. So, with a word of wisdom from our
Father, I invite all sincere seekers of truth to take this journey with me
into the scriptures. To uncover the evidence that God has left for us in a
parable concerning the true sin in Eden which has been hidden since the
beginning of time by the fig leaf.
The Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance defined the word
‘parable’ as, "fictitious narrative of common life conveying a moral
comparison." (Strong’s #3850).
The word ‘parable’ defined by Nelson Illustrated
Bible Dictionary means, "A short, simple story designed to communicate a
spiritual truth, religious principle, or moral lesson; a figure of speech in
which truth is illustrated by a comparison or example drawn from everyday
experiences. A parable is often no more than an extended metaphor or simile,
using figurative language in the form of a story to illustrate a particular
truth. The Greek word for parable literally means "a laying by the side of"
or "a casting alongside," thus a comparison or likeness." In a parable
something is placed alongside something else, in order that one may throw
light on the other."
In a parable, the teller of the story literally casts or
throws a fictitious comparison alongside biblical truth so that the
symbolism conveyed in the story throws light on the spiritual. By using this
method of teaching, God is able to talk with us in a way that we all
understand to lead us to the truth. The confusion over the true sin in Eden
have arisen from Christians taking literally, what is expressed by God in
figurative language. The serpent, the tree of the knowledge of
good and evil, and the forbidden fruit is expressed
metaphorically and was never intended to be taken literally by the Christian
reader, but was conveyed by illustration to reveal truth to those who sought
truth and conceal truth from those who choose to believe the traditional lie
concerning Eden. Eve eating fruit in Eden is the fictitious narrative; Eve
partaking of the fruit of Satan’s seed line is the reality.
The Companion Bible King James Version, 19th Appendixes.
"In Genesis 3 we have neither allegory, myth, legend, nor fable, but literal
historical facts set forth, and emphasized by of the use of certain Figures
of speech. All the confusion of thought and conflicting exegesis have arisen
from taking literally what is expressed by Figures, or from taking
figuratively what is literal. A Figure of speech is never used except for
the purpose of calling attention to, emphasizing, and intensifying, the
reality of the literal sense, and the truth of the historical facts; so
that, while the words employed may not be so strictly true to the letter,
they are all the more true to the truth conveyed by them, and to the
historical events connected with them. But for the figurative language of
verses 14 and 15 no one would have thought of referring the third chapter of
Genesis to a snake: no more than he does when reading the third chapter from
the end of Revelation (ch. 20.2). Indeed, the explanation added there, that
the "old serpent" is the Devil and Satan, would immediately lead one to
connect the word "old" with the earlier and former mention of the serpent in
Gen. 3: and the fact that it was Satan himself who tempted "the second man",
"the last Adam" (Luke 4:1-13), would force the conclusion that no
other than the personal Satan could have been the tempter of "the first man,
Genesis 3:1-Now the serpent was more subtle than any
beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the
woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
The identity of this so-called snake is given in
Revelation 12:7-9 & Revelation 20:1-2.
Genesis 3:2-3-And the woman said unto the serpent, We may
eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree
which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it,
neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
The Hebrew word for ‘touch’ is ‘naga’ a
prime root that means, "to lay the hand upon for any purpose, euphemism;
to lie with a woman." (Strong’s #5060)
The word ‘euphemism’ defined by Webster’s
Dictionary means, "the substitution of an agreeable or inoffensive
expression for one that may offend or suggest something unpleasant."
Through the Hebrew translation of the word "touch,"
it is obvious that the King James translators were very kind to the
Christian readers who like apple stories. In their translation of the King
James Bible from the Hebrew manuscript they inserted a ‘euphemism’ to
express the less offensive word, "touch," instead of the "logos"
that God spoke in the manuscript, "naga," meaning,
to lie with a woman. In spite of this truth, 99.9% of all
churches still teach the watered-down euphemism of the parable and thus
covers up the truth just like Adam and Eve did with the fig leaf.
